Newbe Question by Vaden95
I've used a 12V inverter (and a 24V inverter on a small plane) quite a bit in testing I've done, not just to run a laptop, but various RF test equipment like spectrum analyzers. I never had any problem. But once I tried using a portable generator to run test equipment, and nothing worked. I think the ignition noise got into everything to spoil the low level measurements I was doing. I never...

Longish article on GPS applications by Ken Ashe
I haven't read the whole thing yet, but it seems to be less silly than the general run of articles. http://pf.fastcompany.com/magazine/72/gps.html

Old NAD 1927 Waypoints with Garmin Topo US (WGS 84) by Heynony
I have a very large collection of backpacking/bushwhacking waypoints from years of working with USGS 7.5 topos as my base. Springs and other water sources, open flat spots for camping in otherwise inhospitable terrain, etc, irreplacable stuff. All my desktop computer software used those USGS topos, properly calibrated, as the backgound, with NAD 1927 selected in the program setups. And I...

i'm loking for a gps receiver by Michał
Hi I'm thinking of buying GPS receiver but i don't know what to buy. I worked on Garmin GPS12. I need something to use in remote regions. I liked GPS12 because it catched the sattelites even when i was in the middle of a dense forrest. I'd like to have a possibility to save points and then use it for mapping (scale 1:0000 1:5000 - for scientific purposes). Maybe there is a gps which has mapping...

Mapsource time zones? by Paul W Hancock
Anyone know if it is possible to set some type of alert when using SPIII to be notified when you are crossing over into a new time zone. I do the return trip from North Dakota to Port Huron Michigan each summer and I always get screwed up crossing from CST to EST in northern Mich. I'd like to be able to set an alarm or something when I cross into EST. I can't see any time zone boundaries in...

GPS causes Comm Port Confusion by Rich Carlson, N9JIG
When I have my Garmin GPS3 powered up and plugged into a comm port of my computer(s) during boot-up the computer gets flaky. The cursor bounces all over the place and windows open and close at random. As soon as I unplug the GPS everything goes back to normal. I have had this happen on 3 different laptops, on regular DB9 com ports, 2 different USB to serial adaptors as well as 2 different...

Mag SporTrak vs Garm 201 by Kf6vyh
The Geko's antenna is not large enough, The Sport track will maintain a lock much better. The Geck Screen is not "Back Lighted" the sport track is. With the Magellan you have the option to use AA Lithuim bateries, with the Geko you will not have a Lithium battery option. Even though you do not need a map option if you want the use the Sport track or the Geko will any type of GPS software you...

Warning for Route 66 "2004" - 15 sec GPS update delay imposed. by Keith
Commercial! You get what you pay for ;-) They use NavTech right? Of course commercial. In this way it is not possible to use it in a car on a laptop, which is much cheaper then buying a dedicated navigation system. It wouldn't suprise me if the same thing is going to happen to MS Autoroute/Streets&Trips.... Honestly, using a laptop for in car guidance is not a very convenient (or...

Terraserver URL change by Dave Patton
FYI: It seems Terraserver has changed their website, using "aspx" pages instead of "asp" pages, so you may need to update bookmarks and/or applications to access the Terraserver aerial photo or topo map images. -- Dave Patton Canadian Coordinator, the Degree Confluence Project http://www.confluence.org dpatton at confluence dot org
